Little Eliza Lopes is baited with a ‘wiggly worm’ to keep her calm for the big pic!

Many secrets from the Royal Wedding have been released since the the April 29 ceremony, but none have been as adorable as the small toy the kept Camilla Parker Bowles‘ granddaughter Eliza Lopes smiling for the official family portrait!

According to Camilla, 63, the three-year-old bridesmaid was given a “wiggly worm” by Prince Harry to keep her calm during the crazy wedding day. Eliza took to it so much that she wouldn’t even let it go during the family portrait taken by Hugo Burnand.

‘I was so worried about Eliza,” Camilla said on May 3 at a charity event, the Daily Mail reports. “She is such a lovely little thing and looked so gorgeous in her dress but it was a very big occasion for a child of her age. Harry pulled this wiggly worm out of his pocket in the carriage to keep them amused. Eliza loved it so much that she wouldn’t let go and it even made the official photographs.”

What a cute story — she looks like a little doll in these pics!
